This beautiful family owned 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom vacation home has many premium features and is available year round on beautiful Lake Leelanau. This area of Michigan is known for its cherry orchards, wineries, and beauty, having been named by National Geographic as one of the best summer trips of 2012 and by Good Morning America as “the most beautiful place in America.”
The house sleeps eight and is suited for people of all ages and may be used by a couple looking to get away from it all, or a family looking for a prime lake location suitable for swimming, boating, and other outdoor activities. The house is located approximately 100 feet from the lake and offers 100 feet of private lake frontage. Pine trees on either side provide privacy from the neighbors.
Both levels of the front of the house have floor to ceiling windows throughout, offering beautiful views of sunrises over the lake from the 3 bedrooms.
The upper (walk-in) level has an open-style to allow multiple views of the lake from every room and easy socializing. This level includes a full bath, bedroom (queen bed), living room with field stone gas fireplace, dining area that seats six, and kitchen with full length bar that seats four. There is a large deck with patio furniture that allows you to enjoy a nice meal outdoors or relaxing moments while watching the kids play in the large grass yard or water.
